28 years after MINOR THREAT released the song “Straight Edge”, hundreds if not thousands of kiddies have drawn X’s on their hands with sharpies and donned camo shorts and baseball hats. Without faiil, the drugfree counterculture has become a worldwide phenomenon. Now, to celebrate it, a documentary has been put together. The documentary EDGE offers perspectives on drugfree culture traces this subculture, from its early roots in the beginning of the 1980s to this day by drawing a very differentiated and diverse picture through in-depth interviews of 10 individuals. EDGE takes the viewer behind and beyond the scenes of Straight Edge: the people living the idea, how it changed their lives and what it means to them on a very personal level.
Furthermore, Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat/Fugazi), Ray Cappo (Youth of Today/Shelter) and Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis) give witness to their perception of the history of Straight Edge.
EDGE, perspectives on drugfree culture, will be shown in cinemas across the globe in summer 2009. Check a trailer out at http://www.edgethemovie.com
